Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

AlleyCat of course here to say Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Actually we both do!

Did you miss us? Well we sure missed you! So in the never ending saga of my new computer…I had it long enough to print some much needed stitch guides and do a blog! Then I realized during the migration of info from the external hard drive to the new computer that all of my pictures didn’t make the transfer. So I gave it to my crack IT guy at the shop and he was going to work his magic…adding no hurry really!

I don’t know if I told you a while back that I hung up my hat for Needlepoint Now. Elizabeth and I had this talk when I went back to the shop that one day I would no longer be able to do the magazine work. Well it was over 2 1/2 years later and I called her one day and said that this was it! It was too daunting to work a long day at the shop and then come home and work on guides. It was really a blessing in disguise especially since my computer acted up. I will still do new product reviews, but that’s it!

So back to my computer…my IT guy called me and said well we found about 3-400 pictures and I commented that maybe add a zero to that total. Come to find out there’s around 22,000 pictures! Wow! We wound up installing a new hard drive in the old computer, so I can leave one at the shop and the other at home. I will probably pick it up next week, but in the mean time I thought I would try the blog on my iPad. It works, but I don’t have many pictures…so all you get is me under the quilt and AlleyCat on top!

Blue Bonnett was great! It gave me a little breather before the Getaway, which was a smashing success! Thanks to my amazing team members… they are really my San Diego family and couldn’t have done it without them!

Now I’m enjoying a weekend off and spent the day doing some much needed housework! I will finish up tomorrow with the vacuuming, which AlleyCat hates of course…but for now it’s a little wine time and I’m baking a piece of salmon which is the extent of my cooking!

About Vicky

Needlepoint, morning noon and evening! what could be better than this? I work on the computer in the daylight hours editing stitch guides and drawing stitches that you will see in the next Needlepoint Now for your stitching pleasure! In between this, there is time for taking pictures of my stitching adventures, Facebook and writing stitch guides for canvas that I am stitching for Needle Deeva, Maggie, Ruth Schmuff and others. Mostly needlepoint you ask? well we will talk about my cats Sylvester and AlleyCat, better known as "the brat". Of course I can't forget Felix who was the love of my life for over 14 years. He broke my heart as he departed for the Rainbow Bridge last year. Oh did I mention baseball?

  1. Happy St Patrick’s Day to you and AlleyCat too! I’m glad you were able to make a decision that will ease your busy busy life a bit. Are you excited that Spring training baseball is going on? This afternoon, I watched the two Bay Area teams play against each other. The team I favor by just a little bit lost, but oh well, I still enjoyed watching.

  2. Delighted as always to see that you and your computer are talking to each other, and to us! And that your work load has lessened considerably, of course. Dare we hope that you’ll be able to use a little of that “free” time to update us on your activities? Yes, we all know what happens to “free” time … but I for one am holding thumbs, here in damp and chilly South Africa.

  3. Welcome back! Missed your musings. And yes, Getaway was great. Thanks for all your hard work putting the pieces together. Enjoy your much deserved weekend.

  4. so glad to have you back Vicky and Alleycat. I missed both of you. I am glad that you have decluttered your life. Baseball season is upon us. Do you still have season tickets to the Padres? The Yankees and Red Sox have added some good players so let the rivalry continue!

  5. Hi Vicky,

    Glad to see you’re back. I check every few days or so. Happy that baseball season is starting and am so looking forward to the BELLS on July 29th! Take care.
